Knowledge is crucial to the development of any individual or nation. You need definite information to launch into the next phase of life. The kind of knowledge that sets the CEO of an organization apart from the employee. When you begin to speak wisdom and present ideas that are capable of putting your organization ahead of its competitors. Guess what? You are ready to ascend to heights and most probably become a partner. Isaac sowed in the land in the midst of famine and he reaped a hundred percent in the same year. What did he know that separated him from the other farmers? Isaac did not consider the realities as his reality. He looked to God and stood firm in faith in the covenant blessing upon his life Genesis 26:21-36. You have also entered into the Abrahamic covenant through the blood of Jesus.
“The source of revelation-knowledge is found as you fall down in surrender before the Lord. Don’t expect to see Shekinah glory until the Lord sees your sincere humility.” Proverbs 15:33 TPT
Surrender Before the Lord
Revelation is the revealing of the unknown to man but known to God. God holds every secret and he reveals to whosoever is living in surrender to Him. Your surrender to God determines how much of Him you become. What does it mean to surrender? Surrender means to stop fighting to have your way, and admit to a higher authority; to stop trying to prevent control. Have you surrendered your life to God in all your ways? This may mean becoming like a sheep to do the bidding of the shepherd. Surrender translates to a commitment to God and His word. To sustain fellowship with the Holy Spirit throughout the day. Taking instruction each step of the way, these words from the Lord are revelation knowledge that gives you an edge in life. We, believers, have not learned to train our spirits to receive definite revelation that puts us ahead in life. Daniel 2:19 says, Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven. A consistent life of consecration and prayer to God set Daniel apart in Babylon. He had access to God and God could access Him also. Stop your head from controlling and let your heart take the wheel.
Deliverance is aided by revelational knowledge of the truth from God’s word. We need revelation to reach the next heights that God has predestined for us. Revelation can be compared to the light that aids movement or travel. It helps believers, to walk in the knowledge of the truth and be up to date on God’s agenda. How does revelation come? Understanding comes by studying, meditating, hearing the word of faith, and sitting under Bible-based teachings. The power to heal, deliver, and save is released when we come to the knowledge of the truth. The truth is what the word of God says about you and your situation. I don’t know about you, but I want to know what God has to say about my life, family, friends, church, and nation. Revelation does not drop on the floor on just anyone, it dropped as Daniel and his Hebrew friends worshipped and prayed to the Lord.
Humility of Heart
God is looking out for the character of humility in you to release the depth of revelation knowledge that He has for you. Is your humility visible to Him? It is obvious in total dependence on Him for life and everything else. Humility leads a man to God the greater one always. The Shekinah glory falls as we humble ourselves before the Lord, scriptures say that the Lord is close to the humble. The Lord is nowhere around the proud. He is consistently seeking ways to lift the humble. Seeing yourself and others through the eyes of God happens by revelation, studying, and meditating on scriptures until it becomes your default lifestyle. Revelation puts a man ahead and on time in the journey of life and destiny. The source of revelational knowledge is the Holy Spirit indwelling in you. Glory invades when sincere humility is demonstrated. Note that your humility is not for men to appraise you but for God to say He has found humility in you. Moses saw the glory of God, and it was recorded concerning him as the meekest man in Israel. Shalom!
Lord Jesus, I surrender my all to You, help me to be humble in your sight.
